Florida vs. Louisville Among Elite 8 Expert Picks; NBA Free Pick Too

Elite 8 and soon the 2012 Final 4 odds will be posted. Sensational tipster Vic Duke has an NCAA Tournament lock.

Florida (-1) for 2 Units **

Florida/Louisville 4:30: Coming off my monster 4* selection—Fla (+2) beating Marquette, I’m staying on the Gators here. Florida has consistently played well in the post-season, like Louisville, but bring more to the floor on the offensive end in this matchup. 

Louisville has been outstanding since the conference tournaments began—on a 7-0 ATS tear, but they may have met their match here. The Cardinals have stifled and frustrated their opponents with high pressure defense in which many times led to scoring opportunities. There offense is productive but grows stagnant at times.

Florida, on the other hand, has turned up their defensive intensity in post-season play; consequently, it has fueled their alread potent offense. Even when their dangerous 3 point game is not working, they manufacture points by locking down on the defnesive end and creating transition buckets or with Walker slashing to the basket with a plethora of soft touch shooters to choose from. Boynton has been a steady scoring threat all season and we’ll look for his scoring supporting cast to show up again. As well as L’ville guards the perimeter, Florida’s double-digit scoring big men—Murphy and Young will need to hit their shots near the basket. We’ll bet they do. Florida the call.

Senior Handicapper Matt Rivers of OffshoreInsiders.com has a free pick on Saturday is on the Memphis Grizzlies (+2.5) to the LA Clippers.

Reasoning: I was anti Clippers two nights ago in New Orleans and it paid off in flying colors as Los Angeles completely ran out of gas in the Big Easy thanks to a third straight night of playing and traveling capping off a ridiculous swing of 9 games in 12 days. The Clips had no legs whatsoever in that final period and it showed in a bad loss to a bad team which happened to be Chris Paul’s former squad.

Things may not be as difficult today back home and with a day off but it’s still a 10th game in the past 14 days and the never easy first game back home from a road trip. Add in the fact that it appears, according to many media outlets, that Vinny Del Negro has lost the team and I don’t see much improving today for Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and the home Clippers. These guys are struggling mightily losing game after game and underachieving to the max and now they’re not even losing to man drawing up the x’s and o’s.

Memphis has been scuffling themselves and just lost at Portland on Thursday night but they just don’t seem like a diseased team, which this Los Angeles squad is quickly becoming. Marc Gasol has been great, Rudy Gay can score and all in all the Grizzlies are a capable squad that can put a reeling Clipper team away, even on the road.

It’s not a great value only getting a few points back but in the end I can see this LA team wet the bed once again in yet another defeat as their season continues to spiral out of control.
